The global air barrier market is driven by the increase in the demand for air barrier from the infrastructure and construction industries. The air barrier is applied to safeguard the building or any other structure from possible damages to the essential parts of the building like walls, roofs, and foundation, etc. It prevents the building from corrosion and chemical damage and helps maintain the integrity of the building and prolongs its life. Materials used in the product are such that they strengthen the building to endure harsh climates, thus, increasing the durability of the building. Airflow influences the behaviour of the building under fire, thermal energy, and the indoor air quality. Therefore, by controlling airflow by the use of the air barrier, the building receives the benefits of durability and integrity. Europe is the largest market for air barriers. It is followed by the Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa as the other major markets of air barriers.

(NYSE: CSL), a major player in the air barrier market, announced the procurement of Arbo Holdings Limited, which is the largest provider of sealants, coatings, and membrane systems to the architects and contractors for air and vapor barrier applications and waterproofing. In 2017, SOPREMA, another leading player in the market, launched SOPRASEAL®, an air barrier product which is a vapor-permeable, liquid-applied polyether air barrier product. It provides an excellent air infiltration and moisture protection, along with offering ease of use in low/high-temperature applications, tie-in compatibility, and high elastomeric performance.
